To me- they are pretty much the same. Both are AWESOME!!

 

I would get new vegas if I were you.

 

It just seems there are less freeze ups.

 

Just my opinion, but both games are great. :smileyhappy:

Well, they are both terribly, terribly broken, but I would have to say Fallout 3. As someone who went right from 3 to NV, lots of the extra mechanics took quite a bit of time to figure out, so I can't imagine how difficult it would be for someone with no experience in the series.

Then again, maybe someone with the least experience would be able to get a handle on it all quicker. Who knows...

Why not both? Fallout 3 Game Of The Year Edition and Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition. They're both finished and contain all the extra content. I like to play my games in order so I would have chosen Fallout 3 first.

Fallout 3 is easier due to you getting a perk every time you level up, but is a stronger game imo.

New Vegas really takes away the wasteland survival feel as you spend most of your time in civilization with power, casinoes etc. even with the new "hardcore " mode. i also felt like only one of the add-ons for New Vegas was really worth playing thru(old world blues).

but if you are a big fan of the franchise i would get Fallout 3 GOTYE, and Fallout NV Ultimate Edition.

if your not then id just get Skyrim or maybe FF13 if you're only looking for a good RPG.

I recommend both. Start out with Fallout 3 GOTY. I think I saw it for 20 bucks. Then get yourself NV. Endless hours of fun.

Fallout New Vegas has a more survival type of feeling, while Fallout 3 is more about exploration of the world around you.

I would say get Fallout New Vegas though, because contrary to belief, it has less bugs than Fallout 3 (though still has a lot of bugs).

Dude cant play 2 games at once. Go with FO3 GOTY and do the mothership zeta dlc for the alien weapons. Game will be a breeze if you can finish it :-). After you play for about 100 hrs, switch to new vegas, grab 2 companions which carry tons of weight for carrying your massive weapons collection on the fly and which all can be given a wide variety of unique commands and gear you can swap with them like outfits and weapons, then go have a little vegas vacation. Dont forget to turn on your pipboy radio.
